  • Patent number: 6946427
    Abstract: Applicants have discovered that cyclic and acyclic ketone acids, such as dehydroacetic acid, and salts thereof as well as an aromatic carboxylic acid and salts thereof enhance the performance of iodine containing biocides as antimicrobial agents and preservatives. The present invention provides a composition comprising (a) an iodine containing biocide; and (b) (i) a ketone acid or salt thereof, (ii) an aromatic carboxylic acid or a salt thereof, or (iii) a mixture thereof. Preferably, the ketone acid is a cyclic ketone acid and the aromatic carboxylic acid is salicylic acid.

  • Patent number: 6696093
    Abstract: The present invention is a method of stabilizing hydrogen peroxide in an aqueous solution, such as a circulating water slurry, comprising a peroxide, such as hydrogen peroxide. The aqueous solution may include organic matter. The method comprises adding an aldehyde donor, such as a methylolhydantoin, to the solution (or slurry). The inventors have discovered that aldehyde donors significantly reduce the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide by catalase and other peroxide decomposing enzymes, which are often present in recycled paper. As a result, less hydrogen peroxide needs to be added to a solution to effectively bleach organic matter in the solution. Furthermore, aldehyde donors are safe to handle and cost effective. Another embodiment is a method of bleaching recycled papers in a circulating water slurry comprising organic matter. The method comprises adding hydrogen peroxide and an aldehyde donor to the slurry.
